Re: Our rivals and their signings

The emergence of McNeill has been a major major boost at just the right time.

Plus Hendrick playing well wide right (I said we should try him there 18 months ago) and it’s not all bad.

If we get injuries to Barnes or Wood, we have the personnel to go 4-5-1.

Keep playing as we are and we’ll be fine.

Here in lies the problem. Ref gives a pen, and on review, even if there is the minimalist of contact the VAR panel will give it. No common sense at all.
